Why is it that the blotter sometimes has the disposition or outcome of the incident and other times does not? Enquiring minds want to know.

Good question, Carol X. The original blotter almost always has a disposition, but I only include it when it actually adds something to the story of a specific call. Most of the time it says something like "disposition: unfounded" or "disposition: report taken." I can always keep them in if there's a general consensus. Keep in mind the version of the blotter that runs on Patch is always an edited version of the real blotter (I only pick a few significant calls for each day).
